Compared to other forts in the region (Bahrain for example), Doha Fort doesn't seem like too much from the outside. It is pretty much surrounded by Souk Waqaf and there is construction going on right up to the walls of it. There is a door facing the souk, but it looks closed as in hasn't been open for some time.... More

We were too late to go inside the day we visited but the outside was very untidy with all sorts of junk in front of the entrance. This part of the souk was quiet and empty. Next door there was a compound for the camels which could be seen easily.

I always go to Doha Fort early morning during weekends to watch the sunrise. It is also a good place to do morning exercise.

It's in the middle of town, it's by the main souq, and it reminds you that although Qatar is an energy giant today, it's roots are totally Arabanian.

This is where the ancient meets the modern ... well preserved, well worth visiting. Time spent there is time well spent.

It was really beautifully built and extra ordinarily maintained. I will never forget the view. Thrilling experience, had a binocular view from here. Had lots of fun in this place along with my friends
